Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.
